Virtual Visits with Megan Gross, MS, LPC

As our practice is growing, we are doing our best to keep you updated on the therapists who are working with us. Megan Gross, MS, LPC, is starting with PPA and is offering virtual session. We want you to get to know her better. Read on to learn about your potential therapist.

We asked Megan questions so you can learn about her.

How would you describe your work in a six word sentence?

An eclectic, neuroscience loving big kid.

What makes you smile? Why?

Watching my children grow, hearing them giggle and exploring their world. Being a mother is the most beautifully terrifying experience, all at the same time.

What was the last book you read that had an impact? What were your thoughts on it?

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom-It is one of my daughter’s favorite books so we read it several times during the week. I remember reading the book as a child and it’s bright colors and playfully mischievous story line still make me smile.

When did you first know you wanted to work in the helping field?

In 6th grade I took an elective called Peer Counseling working with other students who needed peer support, conflict resolution, or tutoring and I really enjoyed the experience.

If you could be an insect, which would you be?

A Monarch butterfly. (I had ambitions of becoming an entomologist in elementary school and raised Monarchs for several years).

Coffee or tea?

Occasionally coffee, but only with cold French Vanilla creamer.

What emotion do you think is most difficult to express?

I think Anger is the easiest to express, but the most difficult to understand. It’s often referred to as secondary emotion so I think really getting below the surface is where the difficulty exists.

How do you build trust in clients?

Keeping lines of communication open, allowing clients a safe space to be vulnerable, validating their emotions and their experiences and actively listening with intent.

If you could have dinner with anyone, whether they are dead or alive, who would it be?

My Step father who passed unexpectedly when I was 13.
